As part of the original castle wall area worth the short walk to take photos and while doing so survey the walls if you have time with so much to see in this beautiful town

This is a shot walk out of town but worth the effort. Everything about this marvelous little town should be made a national treasure of Germany.

This is an unusual construction and is a typical tourist (stop here for a photo opp and move on) attraction.The immediate surroundings need a lot of TLC including the removal of junk and grafitti.

This is probably a 10-15 minute walk from the center of town. The bridge is likely 150 feet (at least) below the level of the town. Therefore, the walk there won't... More

We entered Rothenburg on the back roads and rounded a corner to find this amazing structure with the city perched above - what a great photo moment!
